As tensions between the United States and North Korea continue to rise, metro Detroiters are preparing for what could be a nuclear disaster.

At Harry's Army Surplus, workers are seeing a number of products become more popular these days.

Those include water, shelter, fire, gas masks and ready to eat meals.

Lori Miller, a sales supervisor at Harry's, says some customers have come in worried about the political climate.

Another thing they're seeing a rise in is iodine sales. Iodine is used to take the chemicals out of water.

They say this kind of rush has happened before, but Miller says this time things feel different.
